Research project: Rethinking the role of intuition in conjunction probability judgements.


My research aims to explore the circumstances in which faster intuitive thinking is more logical than slower deliberative thinking when making conjunction probability judgements. It supports the notion that people are sensitive to the conflict between logical and heuristic principles underlying the conjunction rule, and suggests that our intuition does not always mislead us; it can sometimes be aligned with rules of logic.


I completed my undergraduate and Honours degrees in South Africa. After ten years of work experience I returned to university and completed my MSc Psychology at Kingston University. I am currently enrolled as a PhD student at the Kingston Business School.
